Oil Change & Oil Filter Replacements
Why You Should Change Your Oil Often: Your car depends on new oil and oil filters to keep it running efficiently. Oil needs to be kept full, clean from fragments and not burnt. Oil acts as lubrication for essential engine components. Moving engine parts create friction, and over time that friction wears the parts down. Oil, or a synthetic lubrication, reduces the damage caused by heat from those moving components. By having a regular oil change service schedule, you will positively increase your engine’s efficiency as well as extend the life of your vehicle’s engine.
It is recommended you have an oil change every 3,000 – 5,000 miles to stop engine wear and keep oil free from particles. For your car’s particular service intervals, always consult your owner’s manual or ask one of our professionals at Jensen Tire & Auto.

Should I use synthetic oil?
Some manufacturers recommend using synthetic oil in their vehicles. Be sure to check your owner’s manual to determine if is recommended for your vehicle.
Why change transmission fluid?
Transmission fluid is an internal lubricant just like engine motor oil. During certain driving conditions and mileage intervals, transmission fluid, because of wear and age, can break down and become contaminated. This may result in costly transmission repairs and possibly the need for replacement. As a general rule the transmission fluid and, in some instances, the transmission filter should be replaced at 25,000-mile intervals. You should always consult your vehicle's Owner's Manual for recommended service intervals.
When should my belts be changed?
You should begin checking your vehicle's belts at 20,000 miles. Things to look for include cracks, splits, glazing, peeling, greasy buildup, and splitting or missing sections. It you notice any of these conditions you should arrange to have all of your vehicle's belts simultaneously changed out. If a serpentine belt breaks, many other components including your vehicle's alternator, water pump, power steering, etc., will not function, resulting in further damage and costly repairs.
